The Producers

Rated 4.0

Runaway Stage Productions does an excellent interpretation of Mel Brooks' broad farce, in which a mismatched pair (Brent Null and Tyson Wheeler) discover that they can steal a lot of money if they produce a flop, with scene-stealing supporting performances by Matthew Rives as a Nazi playwright and Darryl Stroh-De Herrera as a flamboyant director. While it's not for the easily offended, it's chock-full of wink-wink, nudge-nudge humor. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 6/22. $20. Runaway Stage Productions at the 24th Street Theatre, 2791 24th St.; (916) 207-1226;
